SkynetResearch.com
Website for possible Terminator Salvation ARG?

http://www.skynetresearch.com/

not much there yet, but you can join their mailing list. clicking on the Privacy Policy link redirects you to Warner Bros's website. here's the whois as well:

http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/skynetresearch.com

looks to be legit, if anything, this could be a website for a ARG based on the upcoming Terminator Salvation movie (or T4)

EDIT: signed up for their mailing list - i went to check my email in case they asked for verification, which they did - interesting thing was there's an attachment in the verification email, which is a vCard. (a vCard is for a address book, it lists extra info like email and phone number, stuff like that) there's a phone number listed in the vCard - 718-395-2563

the verification email also says:

It is what i had hoped
comparing skynets domain with
http://www.networksolutions.com/whois-search/whysoserious.com
you get very similar results
So the folks at 42 are at it again. They are my favorites.

welcome, j*!
The whois info is actually pretty standard anonymous who-is info. Registration through godaddy, under domainsbyproxy...
skynetresearch.com is on a dedicated IP with no other registered sites showing sharing the same IP. Pretty hard to track anything at this point about the domain, other than the WB connection, unfortunately

Called the number but didnt leave a message as of yet. I sent an email to info@ asking about a release date for their 'list' (hey, I am reaching here trying to get a reply). So I guess I'm in. Smile

I also looked up where the PO Box was physically located. I have attached the location to this message. Do we have anyone here from NY that can go by and confirm?

I don't think we need to confirm where the po box is located.

No no...I mean if there was a way to see if the box was actually available. Like go ask for that particular box. We might have to eventually recover the contents. Stuff like that.
